Looking for gunsmith in N. Miss

Postby stickers » Sun Jan 06, 2019 9:00 am

I am looking for a gunsmith in N. Miss that can thread a barrel and install a brake on a rifle that I have. I am looking for someone who is very experienced in doing this sort of thing.

Hope your side of the state is better than here. There isn't anyone without going to tupelo or New Albany

I dont think I have ever seen a barrel lathe in Lee's shop. I am really looking for someone who has a lot of experience threading a barrel.

If it is Keith Warner then he is great gunsmith but his cost reflects it also. He did a trigger job for a friend of mine on a shotgun and it was $275. I am scared to ask him how much to do what I want, ha.

But there is another guy up there that I heard went to Colorado School of Gunsmithing who has got to be good but I dont know his name. Just heard his name in a conversation a while back.

Look up GSR in ponotoc. I've never had a barrel threaded but asked some friends. They say he does great work. Will Gorder I believe is his name.

Chad I completely forgot about Will Van Gorder, He Ceracoated my AR and did a great job.
I know he installs screw in chokes but don't know about barrel work

Stewart Conrad and several others recommended him for threading. I wouldn't hesitate to use him.
